JMONDAY, SEPTEMBER 11,1944 NAUO4TTJCX DAH.7 NEW? JACK&JIL and the Lunch Box WHY YOUR ACTIVITY DEMANDS MADE-TO-MEASURE LUNCHES Your Sex, Age, Weight, Work Determine What You Should Eat You eat food to get energy. The amount of energy you need depends on your sex, age, weight, and work. The energy is measured in calories. Children need relatively inore calories than adults; the aged need less than people in the prime of life. Many nutritionists agree that your lunch may well provide one-third of your day's food needs. Better lunches help you to avoid unnecessary fatigue, lowered efficiency, illness, absenteeism, and accidents. Because the U. S. needs us strong, eat a lunch that packs a punch! PLAN YOUR LUNCH TO INCLUDE ITS SHARE OF THESE DAILY STANDARDS (Based on Recommendations of t/ie National Research Council) /vm *CTIV« 4SOO CALOmtS ' / MODERATE IY ACTIVE 3000 CALORICS 1 2500 CALORIE* V MODEMTIiy ACTIVE \ \ | 2500 CALOMES LUNCH-BOX TIPS by An Expert Man Itl Start the day before. Have all food and equipment stored in one place, so the lunch may be prepared, quickly. Bread. Use a variety of breads, whole-wheat, brown, raisin, rye, as well as enriched white. Butter. Never melt it. If you do, it will soak in and make sandwiches soggy. Cream butter with a spoon until soft. Have it at. room temperature for easy spreading. Spread butter 'first, and other fillings will not soak into the bread. Wrap each sandwich in wax paper to maintain freshness. Salads. Put well-seasoned mixture into wide-mouthed fruit jars or wax-paper cups. "Top" with three or four lettuce leaves. Enclose silverware, salt, and other seasonings. Fruits. Enclose at least one and sometimes two. If oranges are peeled they will be more readily eaten. Hot Food. Use a wide-mouthed thermos bottle for soups and stews and enclose an extra cup. Soups should be only moderately hot to save time and bother of cooling to drinking temperature. Clean and air the thermos bottle daily. Desserts. Tarts pack more easily than wedges of pie, especially the "runny" kind. Cookies and cake are always good. Bake puddings in individual wide-mouthed jelly jars. Surprise. Always include one daily. Deviled eggs, doughnuts rolled in peppermint (powdered) or sugar, candy, etc. 6 NOURISHING LUNCH-BOX MENUS Monday.
